Kindy kids spoil mums

AT A time when amazing kindy days seem to last forever - way beyond afternoon nap time - and you still have most of your baby teeth, that great all-powerful being known as Mum seems like the sun and the moon and the stars all rolled into one.

At Coolum Beach Kindy in Jones Pde this coming Tuesday and Friday, mother love is going to be everywhere in recognition of she who must be adored.

Starting with the Possum Group, the kids are going to give back a little of the selfless devotion their mums lavish on them every day.

As an early Mother's Day gift, some serious spoiling will be taking place as part of the annual pamper morning.

Kindy director Lorelle Frost never loses her appreciation of the joy her young charges get from these special massage sessions, the making of jewellery together and then the enthusiastic application of make-up, as every mum gets a makeover from their nearest and dearest.

Her advice to first-time pamper mums: "bring your own sense of humour, because it's so much fun".

Not that dads are left out of the scene at this Lady Gowrie early education centre run by the parents.

The kindy and pre-prep not-for-profit centre has already held two well-attended fathers' nights for those partners who cannot get along to the normal kindy morning sessions.

Lorelle said the Coolum kindy experience was all about "acknowledging this partnership as we work with parents in developing each child's full potential".
